The objectives of this study were 1 synthesis of a concept for using Air Force ADPS experience to aid Air Force management in judging proposals for new automation, and 2 specification of an implementation plan for validating and refining the concept by application to a subset of Air Force ADP systems during Phase II. This report satisfies the above objectives. The key assumption underlying the concept developed is that the workload of the ADPS e.g., volume and variety of inputs, size and complexity of data base, response time is the primary casual factor for the cost and development time of the ADPS. A distillation of Air Force ADPS experience will be provided to Air Force management for validating performance, cost, and development time estimates in proposals for new automation. This compendium of ADPS experience will contain 1 highly distilled quantitative and qualitative summaries giving the current status and implementation operations histories of ADP systems with workloads similar to that of the proposed automation, and 2 general ADPS planning factors showing the quantitative relationships between ADPS workload, costs, and development time.
